    Ringwood – 5 Quirky Facts

    1. In The Beginning…
      The first recorded traces of Rimucwude dates from 955 and the name meant Rim of the Forest, at time the area was virtually all forest. The settlement had a church and mill and most of its income came from the forest according to its inclusion in the Domesday Book. By 1553 it had become a centre for horse trading and held regular markets.
    2. Rebel Yell
      Following the Monmouth Rebellion (also known as the Pitchfork Rebellion owing to the rather basic army that took up arms) in which much of the West Country decried the reign of King James II, the Duke of Monmouth was captured in nearby Horton, fleeing defeat at the Battle of Sedgemoor and held in a house in Ringwood. Now named ‘Monmouth House’ it’s where he wrote a letter to the King begging for forgiveness. He was eventually transferred to London and where he lost his head!
    3. Hide & Seek
      Local legend says that Monmouth was discovered hiding in a ditch dressed as a shepherd by a local woman who later killed herself out of guilt. One final strange tale is that after his beheading, it was realised there was no portrait of the Duke, so his body was exhumed, his head sewn back and an artist employed to paint his picture.
    4. Lady Alice
      Following the uprising ‘The Hanging Judge’, Judge Jeffreys held a number of trials across the South West. They came to be known as the Bloody Assizes and hundreds of men and women were sentenced to death in very public fashion in towns and villages across the region as means to supress any further unrest. One such ‘rebel’ was Lady Alice Lisle who had harboured to fugitives from the battle at her home. She was tried and sentenced to be burned at the stake. King James II intervened owing to her status. She was reprieved from the stake… But beheaded instead. Her grave can be seen close to the door of Ellingham Church. One of the town’s pubs was named after her.
    5. Beery Good Show
      Ringwood’s brewing history came into full swing in 1775 when Carters Brewery used water from the River Avon to brew its beers. The town continued to brew beer for a number of years, today the Ringwood Brewery upholds the town’s fine tradition and the local brews can be found in most of the town’s pubs and bars.
